Bylaw Compliance

Most bylaw compliance issues are related to land use or building bylaw matters. The Peace River Regional District appreciates all feedback we get from our residents and we take all concerns seriously. In an effort to ensure equality and fairness, we require all complaints to be in writing and under signature including your name and address.

When a concern is brought forward, the matter is investigated with staff and the Electoral Area Director. All efforts are made to resolve issues before the Regional Board is asked to consider enforcement action. Where an issue cannot be resolved the Regional Board may seek legal remedies such as court orders.

Bylaw enforcement is undertaken on a complaint basis only for the following bylaws:

  • Zoning Bylaws
  • Unsightly Premises Bylaw (Area C only)
  • Mobile Home Park Bylaw
  • Noise Bylaw

For all other existing regulatory bylaws, staff is authorized to react to infractions when observed during working hours. These bylaws and others can be found on our bylaw page

If you observe a situation that you feel is not in keeping with Regional District regulations telephone our staff to discuss the matter.
